Episode 11: The Real Presence, Part One (Reload)

[This episode was reloaded due to sound issues] The Catholic Nerds nerd out on the greatest thing in the world … Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. According to a recent Pew survey, only 26% of Catholics believe in the Real Presence. That’s really, really bad, so the Catholic world freaked out a bit recently. Here’s a recent National Catholic Register article about that: http://www.ncregister.com/blog/msgr-pope/what-should-we-do-about-the-loss-of-belief-in-the-real-presence So, here’s all the coolest stuff we know about the Real Presence. We start with Flannery O’Connor’s awesome quote on the Real Presence. Then, we go through the Bread of Life Sermon in John 6, as well as some great quotes from the Church Fathers, like St. Justin Martyr and St. Ignatius of Antioch. Here’s an article from my blog if you want the text of a lot of these quotes and deep dives into the Greek used in the Gospel: https://www.thescottsmithblog.com/2013/04/warning-you-may-turn-catholic-if-you.html Also, join us for Part Deux, when we’ll go through all the most amazing Eucharistic miracles, including a new one … captured on video! … where the host turns to heart tissue and actually starts beating!!
